Nice to allow them to pop up where there's space. I had to pull all of mine as they were ALL orange!

i couldnt do that! my welsh poppies are all yellow except one but i leave most of them in.

I keep chucking those welsh poppy seeds down and never get any.........

More of a reddy orange than the common orange though - think blood orange!

I will keep some yellow ones for you - they pop up all over the place, by themselves.

not sure when is the best time, they have mostly finished flowering now and have their seed heads on.

Usually when the seed heads start to turn brown I think.
